How did you get green to come out? I tried it once and all I got was a few shades of camo brown. Excellent work BTW!!!

I would leave the background white. I think it looks great the way it is. If you do a background I think it will take away from yoda.

Strangely I dyed it Rit Dark Green and got exactly the results you got. After rinsing I noticed it was an ugly brown. So I took out my light green I mixed earlier with yellow, and re-dyed it, to get the end result. It was a lucky guess, and could have easily ended up ugly.

You sound like my wife! No seriously, she said the same thing. I guess there must be something to it. I'll leave it the way it is. Thanks.

FYI: I now keep all my colors, whether original, or mixed, in Kerr jars. I found a stash of them at my local craft store for only 99 cents each. They work well because they are crystal clear and have a liquid/air tight lid. Just have to be a little careful with the glass when shaking. I put stickers on them with the color of the dye inside.

Looks good,

I thought about your background question, and can only think of

you could just do an extra filled in circle in the background. doesn't even have to be centered, really. it will make him stand out more and fill space. this picture is the closest i could find to what i'm talking about.

Here's a disc I did for a local tournament series, thought I'd share with you guys. The disc is a White Innova Star Sidewinder.

Wow man, I'm a little late on this section but your dye jobs look utterly amazing. The Yoda and Hulk are my favorites. Maybe go with a super light green or blue for the background on yoda?

When I settle down on discs that I want to throw for a long time that aren't DX(tough order to fill) I will definitely send them your way. I'm thinking about getting my star aviar done but it's so slippery that I don't know if I am going to stick with it yet.

The largest brewery in Finland is a part of the same group that brews Newcastle. Maybe someone will buy you one now that they know what you like :-) Do you like nuts? Can you handle chocolate? I had Saranac Black Forest a couple of days ago and it reminded me of Newcastle Brown Ale except it's more chocolate tasting than nuts in the NBA :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Busted out 3 new ones this evening.

The first one is a 170G Orange Champion Rhyno with a random pattern applied by hand and dyed black.

This one is a 175G Pink Star Destroyer with a hypnotic swirl pattern in black.

OK, This last one was an experiment. I wanted to try dropping dye in to cells divided by elmers glue to create a sort of "stained glass" look. Unfortunately, despite heating the dyes, only some colors showed up dark. I picked an interesting disc to try this on....
